Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope.
Habitat for Humanity of St. Charles County has been active within the community since 1996, started by St. Charles volunteers and supported by our community sponsors.
We are an independent, local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, governed by a volunteer board of directors from St. Charles County. It is a non-profit ecumenical Christian housing ministry dedicated to constructing decent, affordable homes in St. Charles County in partnership with hard-working, low-income families.
We have completed 75 homes and will dedicate another 5 homes by the end of this build season. In 19 years, we have helped over 250 family members begin new lives as homeowners and members of our community, rooted in their neighborhoods. As we look forward, we want to thank our sponsors and volunteers and ask our community of St. Charles county to join us and help give "a hand up, not a hand out" to local families by helping them build and purchase their home.
We opened our ReStore in 2007, and have recycled over 2,000 tons of building materials. Our ReStore sales help to support our mission so each dollar raised can go directly to building homes for our partnership families.
Habitat for Humanity of St. Charles County believes in:

- St. Charles County – We express our love for our county through building homes and stating loudly and clearly that all families in St. Charles County should have a decent, affordable home.
